In Xiphos output below, the key 'church' is recognized; however, the derived StrongsGreek number 05624, which never changes, is for a different entry:

5624 ophelimos o-fel'-ee-mos from a form of 3786; helpful or serviceable, i.e. advantageous:--profit(-able). see GREEK for 3786


I have attempted numerous selections, always with the same results. Restarting does not help.
I have the current release version from Debian repositories.
I do not have the resources to make from source.

    Strongs only looks up numbers.
    Church is 1577 and gives you:

    1577 ἐκκλησία [E)KKLHSI/A] {ekklēsía} \ek-klay-see'-ah\ from a compound of 1537 and a derivative of 2564; a calling out, i.e. (concretely) a popular meeting, especially a religious congregation (Jewish synagogue, or Christian community of members on earth or saints in heaven or both):--assembly, church.
    See Greek 1537.
    See Greek 2564.

    For anyone else trying to get Greek Strong's lookups to work, here's how:
    Open the Greek text, right-click in the text pane, and select Module Options > Strong's Numbers.

    Now you should be able to mouse over or click on the numbers to do the lookups.
